Steampunk Phone Frame and Card

Hello crafty friends! 
Today I am sharing the gift I made my husband for Valentine's Day. 

I found this AWESOME phone frame at Gone Artsy.  They just expanded their shop and have all sorts of super cool stuff now. 

These gorgeous flowers are from Gone Artsy too. I love them! They are foam and come in different colors. These ones started out white. I wanted to have a deep red color so I sprayed them with black ink spray and let it dry. Then I sprayed them again with red ink sprayed and dried again. They turned out exactly how I wanted!

I used gears and embellishments from numerous places including Miriam's Crafting Supplies.

I made the card using Mechanica from artbymiran. I colored her with Copic markers. 
I am learning to add details to the images I color which has been a lot of fun.
I made the gears rusty looking by coloring with E93 first. Then I took E59 and colored in the areas I wanted the darkest shading. The next step was to color the gear with E08. I left small areas of the lightest color untouched by E08. Lastly I colored with the colorless blender. 

Once I had everything colored I added spurts of Goosebumps
spray to the gears to give them more texture.

Copics used...
Skin: E0000, E000, E00, E21, E11, E04, R20
Lips: E04, R20
Hair: E21, E25, E29
Eyes: YG03, YG11, YG63, C00, C01
Clothes and Roses: R35, R46, R59, E59
Wings and hoses: C3, C5, C7, C9, 100
Gears: E93, E08, E59, Colorless Blender
